Thank YOU!!!

I have asked over and over if these films are PD. You and BillyMays are the only guys whom have ever answered! Please don't remove the film as I want to get it to The Video Cellar so it may be restored and they can get paid for it. I have all of Frances Farmer's films and they are in horrific shape. 'Borderflight' is abysmal. They are all from the early 1930's.
I would like to post them here so the Video Cellar can grab them. My print of 'Come and Get It and a few others are fantastic.

Thanks again so very much!
